The everlasting (straw) flowers in the garden are still going strong, and they reminded me of an old linen apron in the cupboard which featured a bunch of Tasmanian wildflowers, including my beloved straws.
It was pretty old and I never used it, so it's become a summery cushion to pair up with some outdoor blankets, etc. Good for reclining upon with a sketchbook. Not that there's too much time for that of late.
Speaking of everlasting summers, did you see this amazing clip of Ocean Ramsey, the Hawaiian marine biologist riding a Great White shark? She works to change perceptions about sharks and other marine life. Keira is very inspired as she has been reading a lot about shark finning and marine conservation of late- she wrote a letter to Parliament which you can see on her blog, and even got a reply recently.
